big style, small price

What’s this, another blog post? To think I used to do it nearly every day… but summer is a busy time. The last week or so has been a blur – but a fun, sunny, musical blur (U2! pool party! shopping! grilling!), so I’m definitely not complaining.

As a thanks for hooking her up with U2 tickets, my friend Andrea bought me this dress from H&M when we were walking around State St. the day after the concert:

Such a fun print and color palette, right? The best part? It was $15.

$36 (faux) leather & lace

Hi! We actually had some sunshine this morning! Which made me start to break a sweat taking these pics, no lie. But was it nice and toasty warm outside, too? Noooo, of course not!

Oh well! Happy with this, which has quickly become one of my new favorite outfits – and it seriously cost $36.

Jacket: Ann Taylor Loft (size 6).

buttoned banana

Nope, no yellow here. I misled you. SHAME, SHAME!

But this buttoned sweater (size M) is by Banana Republic. (Get it??) And it’s cashmere. Loved the colors, the style, the buttons – and the price: only $17 at Crossroads!

Note to Evanston staff: try being friendlier and actually putting people’s clothes in the bag before brushing them off. Last I checked, leaving their clothes in a pile on the counter while you talk over them to the next customer is bad service.

spotted & striped gap goodies

After making at least 3 trips to Gap to find enough stuff worthy of spending my 50%-off Groupon on, last night I hit the gold mine. Or the navy mine, as it were.

This felt like it came together really effortlessly, much more so than yesterday.

hard & soft

I’m not so sure this worked.

As I was putting it together in my head, I really liked the idea. But seeing the photos made me furrow my brow in slight panic as I rushed out the door with no time to change. Oh well!
